If it does it will surely will take home the Concours plaque.  Very sharp...

Spoiler aside....it wouldn't pass tech simply due to the small amount of fender flares going on that aren't completely cut out or off.

In CanAm and GTC, "high-wing" is allowed as long as it is true to the real car.
I wanted to see if it is allowed in Stock car, but apparently not.
 
I'll trim the wheel arches more. :D

Has the car been on the track yet? I did one like this too many years ago. The wing just flapped in the breeze...

Not yet, but I think it will probably just make running harder.
